Khufu is a 75/25 indica-dominant hybrid named after the first pyramid-building pharaoh. Looking for a strain that stacks bud on top of bud? Look no further.
Heritage & Genetics: Named after the Egyptian pharaoh that started the whole pyramid building affair, this indica dominant hybrid is a three-way cross of a San Fernando Kush male and Devil’s Harvest’s very own Kuchi female (SFV Kush x Exodus Cheese). Upon discovering the Kush features of this combination, Devil’s Harvest’s breeders decided to solidify these features by backcrossing the same plant with an SF Kush female and a Kuchi male.
Flavor & Aroma: Considering the lineage of Kuchi, which partly consists of Cheese genetics, it’s not surprising that the resulting Khufu strain has a powerful aroma. Unlike its ancestors, however, this strain comes with the added bonus of a sweet scent of citrus, coupled with the hashish-like odor of Kush, and a hint of pepper.
Effect: The effect of Khufu is predominantly indica by nature. Expect a deep and heavy body-stoned sensation that relaxes all the muscles and nerves in the body. Unlike most powerful indicas, this strain still leaves some mental clarity to remain talkative and sociable.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including stimulating appetite, reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Khufu is only available in non-feminized. Growers wanting to grow mother plants or experiment with their own crosses will value Khufu for its vigorous and varied genetics. The three-way cross presents the largest amount of varying phenotypes so keep a close eye on the individual characteristics of every plant and treat them accordingly. Nevertheless, most plants sprouting from Khufu seeds will display dense buds which consist of stack upon stacks of tightly packed nugs that will look amazing, no matter what climate its cultivated in. Khufu has a flowering time of around 9-10 weeks.
